In times of Corona, dating portals are seeing significantly more people looking for a partner. But how do you find your dream partner online? And how do you flirt online correctly? We have summarized the ultimate tips.
First of all, you should be clear about what you are actually looking for. An adventure? An acquaintance with that certain something? A marriage? Only then should you start looking for the right portal and creating a successful profile.
When creating your own profile, it is important to present yourself authentically. Cheating is not a good idea, especially when it comes to important information like age or weight. At the latest on the first date it will be discovered anyway, and who wants to start a relationship with a lie? Posing photos or recordings with the borrowed Porsche are therefore taboo. When taking photos, be sure to include a portrait and a full body photo. Under no circumstances should you hide your face behind sunglasses. And interests and hobbies can also be seen in the photos. Detailed information on their own attitudes and hobbies make it easier for those interested to compare whether there are similarities.
The cover letter should be formulated personally. No general phrases, instead information that shows that you have read the other person’s profile. As a rule, showing off is not well received, but even more so when showing interest in others. You can vary the time interval between the answers. Don’t push and don’t get nervous if the other person doesn’t answer after five minutes. Playful humor creates curiosity. You should arrange to meet for the first time as soon as possible, because this is the only way to really judge whether there is mutual attraction.
Here, too, you should be authentic, choose a place where both feel comfortable and where you can get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. And very important: despite all emancipation, most women still expect the man to take the lead. And the tip to women: give the man the opportunity to take the initiative.
Online dating costs a lot of money on some portals. Anyone who thinks to circumvent this by exercising the right of withdrawal after two weeks is often faced with high bills. In fact, you usually have a 14-day right of withdrawal. However, if you have already used the service extensively within this period, the portals will charge “compensation” for the use. In principle, they are also entitled to do so, even if courts repeatedly reprimand the calculation of the high compensation and correct the value downwards. If you do not want to find yourself in a protracted legal dispute, you should therefore consider beforehand whether you want to take out a subscription and be careful when using the right of withdrawal. And you should remember that most contracts are automatically renewed if you don’t cancel them in good time – often three months before the subscription period expires.
Important: Online dating, like flirting in “real” life, should also be fun. So don’t put yourself under pressure, enjoy contact with like-minded people!
